We're already cold thinking about it...

Lads, it's getting nippy out there.

And according to the folks at Met Eireann, temperatures are set to drop in a big way this week.

The forecast reads:

"Thursday will turn much colder overnight with clear spells and some showers. A widespread frost is expected with icy stretches. There is a risk of a spell of rain or sleet developing in southeastern counties for a time. Minimum temperatures -1 to +3 degrees in light southwest or west breezes."

"It looks set to be a cold day on Friday with early frost clearing to leave a mix of sunny spells and passing showers. The showers will be frequent in western and northern coastal counties with a risk of hail and thunder. Highest temperatures of 4 to 7 degrees in fresh southwest or westerly breezes. Largely dry overnight with clear spells and a widespread sharp frost. Minimum temperatures of -2 to +2 degrees."

Okay, that's chilly.

Highest temperatures of 4 to 7 degrees in light, variable breezes. Very cold and frosty overnight with some icy stretches. Minimum temperatures of -4 to 0 degrees with light winds and a few fog patches."
